Spring has sprung, and it's the season for all things cute, fluffy and perhaps a little bit naughty!

There's little as joyous as a tiny puppy bringing chaos and love into your home, so the AllPetSolutions team thought we'd do some research into the top dog names that will be filling our social feeds this summer.

What Are the Most Popular Dog Names for Boys?

Lots of dog names for boys are inspired by celebrities, events, or places, so we won't be surprised to see some pups christened with the names of England's Euro 2020 football players!

How to Choose the Right Name for Your Puppy

Naming a pup can be like choosing children's names - you have a carefully refined shortlist, but when your dog starts scampering about with a total lack of fear, they might have to be a Scamp or a Rascal!

And, those (rare) angelic pups who love nothing more than to snuggle on your lap and give you doggie kisses might be a perfect Romeo.

The best option is to look at your pup's personality and choose a name that fits them down to the ground, and when it feels right, you'll be sure to know!
